Our Mission

The DC Urban Gardeners (DUG) Network’s mission is to inform and connect DC residents to resources, events, opportunities, forums, services and programs that support food access, healthy eating, urban agriculture and environmental sustainability in the greater DC area.

About DUG

At the DUG Network, we believe that connecting residents to local resources in DC is vital to creating a positive, lasting community within the growing urban agriculture, food access and environmental
sustainability movement.

Founded in 2015, DUG was creat12800384_10154034362797948_1295504194069501286_ned to provide an expansive and consolidated platform through which area residents and organizations can more easily connect to the programs, events, and resources currently available to the DC community.  

DUG is a cooperative organization created to be sustainable over time.  DUG was organized as a non-profit co-op to be a flexible, volunteer-led organization grounded in the community we serve.  DUG is made up of volunteers 12803308_10154034362712948_3652319737131841655_nwho donate their time and resources to create, maintain, develop and share information with the DC community.
